Pros: These are seriously great WiFi APs at a great price. You can control so many things with them like guest access, schedules, range, multiple SSIDs, etc. The UniFI app used to configure these is great as well... you can put in a schematic of your location's layout and mark where the APs are... and it'll tell you where the range will hit and where there may be dead spots.
Cons: UniFI app is a little involved, but once configured, it's great to use. Only thing I don't like is that since I do IT consulting, I can't have multiple sites configured on my laptop's UniFI app (or maybe I just haven't figured that out yet).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Just... FFFFAAAASSSSTTTTT!!!!!
Cons: a little big, but nothing you can't carry on a keychain
Other Thoughts: Removable. This drive is RIDICULOUS in speed when put in a USB3 port. I've used USB3 drives from Corsair, Transcend, and Kingston... this drive BLOWS them out of the water. 16GB of a mix or large and small files transferred from USB drive to the PC in a matter of 3mins. AMAZING!!! Yes, it's bigger than other USB3 drives, but I'd still take it... in fact, just ordered another one!!!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Small footprint
- Well accessorized, comes with stand for vertical orientation
- Enough ports in front and back
Cons: Not true plug and play under Windows bootcamp setup, but that's not Startech's fault (Apple, grow up). ALSO, if you turn on the Mac machine without having the dock plugged in, Windows OS will not detect it... the dock TB cable MUST MUST be plugged in the laptop TB port BEFORE powering on the laptop. Apparently the TB port is NOT PnP when running under Bootcamp WinOS (thanks CrApple).
Other Thoughts: Okay, so I have this sucker set up as a dock in Bootcamp Windows 8 Pro for a client. Obviously this is marketed for a Mac OS laptop, but it comes with the drivers for Window OS 7/8... and it works quite well.
- does multiple monitors without issues
- does PnP into the dock without issues
- does charge peripherals plugged into the USB ports such as iPhones, etc.
- USB ports of the dock are PnP (even if the dock is not PnP via the TB port to the Mac)
Overall, I have to say I am impressed with this device... it's cheaper than the alternatives, gives more options for plugging in your devices (1x HDMI, 2x TB, 2x USB in the back). Hopefully, it'll last a while.
